I love the playful aesthetic of Santa Monica. When I was dreaming up the look and feel for this dinner, I wanted to include all of those lively colors and textures you see at the Pier. It really feels like an endless summer at the Pier – swirly soft serve ice cream cones, funnel cakes, and a ferris wheel with a view of the ocean. It’s really a magical recipe of beautiful things. I had a lot of fun with this one. Hope you love it.
